Direct action: How a little bit can go a long way

Newsletter des Refuser Solidarity Network (RSN)

(08.06.2024) Today, I would like to talk about the support we at Refuser Solidarity Network (RSN) are providing for some of the most important direct resistance actions taking place on the ground in Israel today. We are in close contact with a number of resistance groups. These are led by young Israeli activists who are not affiliated with established NGOs. They have great ideas, a talent for organization, and large amounts of courage and motivation.

Pacifists pledge to resist national service, if scheme is implemented

Press Release
